      Fitting

      • Choose best device for injury.
      • Fit from behind the ankle to the front.
      • Best fit is from sitting position with foot flat on the floor.
      • Laces are fixed within the two velcro straps.  Make lace adjustments first.
      • Apply the large velcro tabs and then pull across the long/slim velcro tabs to appropriate tightness.
      • Should be applied from the bottom of the brace (at toe end) to the top of the brace (calf end) or (bottom up) with laces or straps.
      • The higher the support length is up to and through the gastroc, the more effective the brace will be. 
      • Mark devices “Left” / “Right” as they will tend to form to foot they shape.

      Post Fitting

      • Check fitting sitting  down and also while walking.
      • Make sure brace has been fitted with appropriate strap tightness.
      • Brace should not dig into or irritate the Achilles tendon, bottom of the foot or top of the foot.
      • Add compression from straps starting from the bottom of the brace (at toe end) to the top of the brace (calf end) or (bottom up) with laces or straps.
      • Decrease compression from top (calf end) to bottom (toe end).
      • Disengaging velcro and securing tabs prior to and after wearing will help with future fittings .
